  • Lions' LeGarrette Blount: Gets ejected Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Blount was ejected from Sunday's game in San Francisco, Chris Burke of The Athletic reports. One of three active Detroit running backs Week 2, Blount's ejection resulted from coming off the sideline to shove 49ers linebacker Elijah Lee, who had a close call on a hit of Matthew Stafford near the Lions bench. There's no telling if the NFL will impose some sort of punishment on Blount, but Kerryon Johnson will emerge from this game unscathed, unlike Blount, Theo Riddick (who picked up an ankle injury) and Ameer Abdullah (who was inactive again).

  • Lions' LeGarrette Blount: Will play Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Blount (shoulder) will play Week 2 against the 49ers, Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network reports. Blount's had a confusing week. He was a full participant in practice Wednesday and Thursday before landing on Friday's injury report as questionable. He logged just 13 snaps Week 1.

  • Blount (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest in San Francisco. In his debut with the Lions on Monday, Blount garnered just 13 offensive snaps before he was taken to the locker room in the third quarter after he seemed to hyperextend his left knee. Appearances can be deceiving, though, as he's been present on the Lions' Week 2 injury report with a shoulder injury. To further that point, he logged every practice rep before turning in a limited showing Friday, likely spurring the questionable tag. Blount's status will be worth watching with a 4:05 PM ET kickoff on tap Sunday, but Theo Riddick, Kerryon Johnson and even Ameer Abdullah are healthy in the event he takes a seat.

  • Blount appeared to have his left knee hyper-extended after being tackled in Monday's game against the Jets and was taken into the locker room, Justin Rogers of the Detroit News reports. Blount had his leg bent back awkwardly after being tackled in the backfield during the third quarter and appeared to be in a lot of pain. The severity of Blount's injury remains to be seen, but if he's forced to miss the rest of the contest expect Kerryon Johnson and Theo Riddick to increase their snap-count. The veteran running back has four carries for minus-three yards before exiting.

  • Lions' LeGarrette Blount: Unexpectedly busy
    By RotoWire Staff

    Blount took 11 carries for 45 yards in Friday's preseason game against the Buccaneers. Blount got the start and the first carry, but he also stayed in the game until early in the fourth quarter, sharing snaps with Theo Riddick, Kerryon Johnson and Ameer Abdullah. It was a decent preview of what to expect early in the season, as there's little question the Lions are headed for a committee approach. Riddick is locked in for obvious passing downs and Blount figures to handle short-yardage work, but the rest of the touches may be unpredictable week to week. The Detroit offense has a favorable Week 1 home matchup against the Jets on Monday Night Football (Sept. 10).
